Hull defender Davies rights off England call-up for World Cup

Hull City defender Curtis Davies has all but given up on the England squad for the 2014 World Cup after not getting called up for next week's friendly against Denmark. "I feel disappointed because I knew the manager was going to name a bigger squad," the 28 year old told BBC Radio Humberside.

"I think this is the nail in the coffin of my chances of going to Brazil."

He added: "You never know until the last minute but, for me, anyone who was going to be in consideration would have been included in this 30-man squad.

"I thought I might have been picked but football is about opinions and obviously the manager's opinion on my style is that he doesn't like it enough to put me in the squad at the moment."
